RELATIONSHIPS: Emotional availability, Attachment and Authenticity with Todd Baratz
By Sony Music Entertainment
The time has come! It’s our final episode of Season1! But fear not Floss fans, we’ll back with Season 2 really soon. To help you work through your anxious attachment to this podcast, we’ve got the amazing Todd Baratz on the show this week. He and Floss will be answering your questions, listening to your voice notes and taking calls from a couple of you!
Our relationships , friendships, romantic partnerships, family relationships are what fill our lives with meaning and teach us the most about ourselves. It’s a cliche but it really does all come down to relationships. We live in a time when on the one hand we have access to so much helpful information, online, through podcasts and books, and exposure to concepts and ideas about relationships, that we have the potential to really grow in emotional literacy and maturity. But on the other hand this can mean that big complex subjects are reduced to memes, infographics and 140 characters - things like “ emotional availability, attachment styles, red flags” can all be used to label and even condemn what is often, normal, fluctuating human behaviour.
This is exactly why we thought Todd Baratz would be the perfect expert to round off the season. He doesn’t subscribe to labels and actively debunks a lot of the common misconceptions that get shared, often out of context. Todd is a certified sex therapist, licensed individual and couples psychotherapist, and writer who specializes in relationships and sex. Online his account @yourdiagnonsense is shaking up the world of therapy one brutally honest post at a time. He is a proud queer man and he communicates in a way which makes it okay to feel the many different things we all go through- we all contain multitudes!
